A Little History
Nestled on 1,200 acres of wooded land. The camp opened for summer camp sessions in 1968 and served as the Cherokee Council’s long term summer camp until 1994. At that time, the Cherokee Council merged into the Old North State Council and Cherokee Scout Reservation replaced Camp Wenasa as the Old North State Council’s summer camp.
